This is a nice applesauce to enjoy anytime, but especially with latkes during Hanukkah. You don't need to get your blender dirty; you just need a potato masher and a little elbow grease.

  • 3 pounds
    apples, whichever type you prefer; peeled, cored, and chopped; (about 8 cups)
  • 1/2 cup
  • 6 tablespoons
    granulated sugar
  • 6 tablespoons
  • 1 Juice from
    lemon, about 1 tablespoon
  • 1/2 teaspoon
    ground cinnamon or apple pie spice
  1. Put chopped apples in a large nonstick saucepan and stir in water, sugar, sugar-substitute, and lemon juice. Bring mixture to a boil, cover, and reduce heat to medium-low. Cook until apples are tender (about 10 minutes).
  2. Use a potato masher to break cooked apples up into a nice puree.
  3. Stir in ground cinnamon or apple pie spice. Serve warm or cold.
